How about writing a story about an evening in "The Prancing Pony" or any other pub in Middle Earth? You may set your story in any original or canonical pub. Who could be there? Dwarves, men, Dúnedain, hobbits? Others? A disguised elf?
How about a birthday-party? A business meeting? Or just a chance encounter between strangers?
Would there be only talking or also singing and dancing?
Gossip? Rumour? Drunkards?
